Sharper where properly struck up but covered with uniform fine roughness. No verdigris. The only notable marks are a thin scratch or fissure from the bust tip to the rim and a small chip below the I in LIB. Most of the date is off the planchet but the legends on both sides are nearly complete. Weight 147.0 grains.
